Events at the Theatre

Northern Ballet offers a range of opportunities for you to get a step closer to the company and to find out more about our productions.

Talks and demonstrations give an insight into life in a touring ballet company, offer the chance to see the dancers in training and reveal some of the secrets behind creating a production. And for those with energy or a secret desire to dance, our movement workshops offer you the chance to have a go, learn some new steps and get creative, whatever your ability.
